Rockingham County Fair

Here's another long exposure carnival ride from the Rockingham County Fair! I loved the light streams this particular ride made. I wanted to keep some color in the sky, so I shot at twilight (just a couple minutes after the sun went down). The shutter was open for ten seconds on this shot.


The ride was one of those with a "ship" at the end of a pendulum. It swings back and forth until it finally has enough momentum to make a full circle.
